Rice peak is on the north side of Mt. Lemmon in Tucson. This trail starts in Oracle and follows Old Mt. Lemmon road to the Peppersauce campground turnoff where the trail begins. According to Wells it is difficult in spots. Tucson Rough Riders 4x4 club calls it moderate. I am going to call it a 3.5 rated trail that climbs to an elevation of 7500 ft. It is on page 166 in the second edition Wells book. I have been on the first part of this trail years ago with this group on a Mt Lemmon run. I have an ulterior motive for this particular run. It is a prerun for me for a 4x4 Ham run I am leading here later in the month. This will be a long run because of the travel time to Oracle and home. Recent rains or snow will cancel this run. If you would like to meet us in Oracle instead of Florence, send me an email and I will give you time and place.
